Advertising in the spotlight

Every year, the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity awards the best in commercial work. A few members of our team went to see the winners at WAG-Qaumajuq for inspiration from the hilarious, hypnotic, heartfelt, haunting and heartbreaking offerings, and to learn what we can from the ones that truly hit the mark. 

Enjoy this mini-festival of our faves, or get out and see all the winners when the WAG brings them back for a rerun March 30 to April 1. Our tip from seeing people turned away at a sold-out show: Get your tickets in advance and arrive early for the best selection of seats.
